  • The Zhengzhou museum — sure, it looks like a clutch of golden Easter eggs
  • There are lots of natural materials like coal, oil, gas, cashmere and also construction materials like marble and granite.The planning and operation of large scale Chinese modern engineering projects have benefited from the mobilization of money and resources and support within the social organism.There is no influence by market supplies and demands.
  • Building a city in the middle of a desert. People expected a industrial transformation and economic transition through a new land settlement.Construction and destruction keep growing up GDP and underpinning economy. Furthermore, this life cycle satisfied the need of political ecology.But they do not have as many customers as they expected. if they don&apos;t have enough customers with deep enough pockets to foot the bill now, why not wait? Something still doesn&apos;t add up. It still smells like a huge scam to me
  • So if Stephen is correct how do you explain the fact that it will cost at least as much as the construction to keep those buildings in shape and running.
  • Land settlement- western practice Build a modern cityin rural area with no market
  • Changhaipudong once being mocked as a purpose-built version of Manhattan, as overdesigned and under occupied, evidence in steal and glass of properties. A decade ago, Pudong was an urban-development model failureguided by state planners, a soulless district where 70% of the buildings stood empty.  But now, the district&apos;s transformation into a vibrant nexus for finance, trade and entertainment is testament to factors like the strong momentum of Chinese migration toward urban centers. 
  • Analyst: IAin’t afraid of No ‘Ghost Cities’, Feb. 27, 2013 WSJWhy truly crap investment saves China?He pointed out that by investing ghost city to underpin growth, China saved itself from even more unwise overinvestment in area that could have done lasting damage to the Economy, such as manufacturing
  • Historically, china had been tied to the tradition of grand unification projects, such as the construction of the great wall, grand canal.Market economic rule against, rapid urban planning
  • Building a city in the middle of a desert. People expected a industrial transformation and economic transition through a new land settlement.Land form- traditional chinese thinking patternPractices with this pattern would be based on the ideals of harmony, human perfectibility and systematic fit with natural systems and processes.
  •  The Dujiang Dam irrigation project is the oldest large-scale irrigation project in the history of the world. It has been supporting people in Sichuan Province, China, for more than 2,000 years. Fish mouth levee, flying sand weir and bottle neck channel, as an organic unity and enables them to perform the three function s organically: flood diversion, sand discharge, and irrigation Supply. This case is good practice of ontology which is able to eliminate the possible conflicts bwtween diverse parts of engineering practice
